Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
Pretty good, I'm going to try red wine vinegar and olive oil next time, and ease up on the salt.

Southwestern Turkey Soup

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Tried this last night, and it was pretty good. Had to do some improvising. I used chicken broth, because that's what was on hand, then diced up a fresh tomato instead of whole canned tomatoes. Didn't have cilantro or avocado, and eyeballed the spices since I had a lot of turkey to use, and had to increase the broth by about half again the amount. Then I added some noodles after getting a bit too much cayenne. Anyway, it made an incredibly tough tasteless turkey breast edible. In our house it may be known as "Grilled Turkey Disaster Salvage Soup." :-) Point is that even with all my substitutions, alterations, and left out ingredients it was still tasty. Kids ate all of theirs, and DH and I each ate two helpings.

Simple White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Okay, lesson one,read the entire recipe before starting! I was altering this recipe to make a single garlic herb loaf (I just added garlic powder and Italian seasonings). It wasn't till I saw 1 tablespoon of salt that I began to suspect this might be a rather large recipe... then I saw 8 cups of flour! I ended up with two very large loaves of garlic herb bread to go with my left-over spaghetti! Anyway since then I have cut the recipe in half, and made it several times. Last time I made it into hoagie type rolls for homemade french dips. Today is going to be small dinner rolls for Thanksgiving. Overall I love this recipe, and it has become my base recipe for various types of bread.

Hasselback Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Okay, even my 5 year old son who hates potatoes liked these! I will probably use more butter cheese and seasonings next time, but still very good!

High-Altitude Challah

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Love this bread, family loves it! Made 4 loaves this weekend, kept one at home, and took 3 to a church potluck. There's not even one slice left. Just a note... I use the leftover egg whites from the separated eggs to brush on the loaf before baking, works great.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
These taste great, but I'm still struggling with them shrinking back on themselves. Going to study the tips other cooks have suggested, and try again.

Creamy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Basil

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Yummy! Something new and different for breakfast, but doesn't take any longer than regular scrambled eggs. Used cheddar cheese because that's what I had. Can't wait to try again and maybe add some Red Bell Peppers.

Tasty BBQ Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Yummy! I ended up melting the butter on the stove (I'm a procrastinator and didn't get the butter out to soften early enough) and stirring in all the spices then brushing on the corn with a basting brush. Really penetrates the corn that way. Love it!

Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Well, if I was an experienced bread maker, maybe these would have turned out better. As it is they don't look too good, and I'm not sure they're going to taste good. Instructions are too vague. I wasn't sure whether to knead the dough or not, or whether to grease my pan. (I kneaded a little and thoroughly greased my pan.) Should I have let them rise some more while the oven preheated (I didn't). How do I get them brownde on top. I just hope they taste better than they look.
